Big weekend for Project Birthday! YAY! Here’s the list 6-10:
6. Helped my dad get tickets for his best friend for Bruce Springsteen in Minneapolis (yes, I know I mentioned this before), to surprise his wife (who is awesome) for their 40th wedding anniversary.
7. Bought my friend L birthday brunch.
8. Held the door for several old ladies out for a shopping trip–one gave me a hug.
9. Baked Milk Bar’s Chocolate chip Marshmallow Cornflake Crunch cookies for True Blood Night–They were pretty much all gone before the show had started.
10. Washed an elderly man’s machine at the gym. He had mobility problems and he def. didn’t need the back and forth of the wipes, garbage, etc.
So far, I am really loving this idea and this challenge. And, well, it’s true–you don’t need to spend a ton of cash on doing this. It takes as little as a smile and can be grand as treating someone to lunch or more! I think that is what makes this so spectacular. Plus, it is slowly helping me be a bit more outgoing among strangers. Unless I’m at a party with people who are part of a friend’s network, I find that I’m horribly shy and self-conscious. This project is def. doing a number on me and my abilities to just to some crazy, slightly outgoing stuff.
Am very thankful to MKinwonderland’s blog for telling the world about this wonderful project.
Again, if anyone has some fun ideas to share on these random acts of kindness, please let me know in the comments.
